hetchy regional water system. with also generate clean renewable energy for city services like public buses, hospitals, schools, and much more. and finally, we collect and treat all the city's wastewater and stormwater making it safe enough to discharge into the san francisco bay and pacific ocean. >> in 2006 the puc was planning a record number of projects. >> the public utilities commission is a very infrastructure-rich organization. we're out there rebuilding the water system. we've budget working on power generation in the country. we've been doing sewer for the city. we're looking at a brand-new rebuild of all watt systems in san francisco and we haven't had a home that's been other than mental. >> they staff over 900 people. the puc is in two office locations. >> you know, this is such a great place for a building. if the puc owned that building and we could make that the icon i can sustainable building puc represents, wouldn't be a dramatic idea? >> so, one of the major decisions we made was we wanted to make a statement with this building. we wanted this building to be a lead
it civilly would be a local scaled acceleration of affordable tax and co generation of energy efficiency and other local renewable demand site resource as far as the conceptual approach and the product definition this is seasonally what was referred to in the industry as energy as a service and that means that you get out of the old kilowatt hour paradigm that goes back to the 1930's where you are selling hours of power into a service approach where you are standard dyeing on site affordable tax and building retrofits as standard components of that service we focus on a no money down approach to energy efficiency and renewables this would not only require any kind of a late premium to the customers but a rate discount for those customers and is so energy efficiency with a discount and no money down and that is product differentiation that p g and e does not offer and utilities do not offer but we are uniquely poised to offer. this would apply to both the business community as well as residential customers. and so, as far as the approach to development we are really recommending an integr
on a lot of different things when it comes to local distributed generation of local clean energy, they are not getting this. and we have really got do something to pick up on what jessica was talking about and we need to hire a director for the staff that is deeply knowledgeable about the local distributed generation and how to implement it through this program otherwise we are going to lose this program. and i want to get back to the key problem is that for many many years through many ordinance and is resolutions both the board of supervisors and yourselves have directed your staff to work on the local power model and bring it forward. these resolution and is ordinances did not direct power enterprise staff to battle with the contractor, who which, is far more enter the than they are on these issues and resist what they are proposing at every turn i'm sorry to be so critical, but this is very serious as you were saying commissioner mr. president, the future of our children and grandchildren is at stake here. and just to refer also to the packet that jessica referred to the p
focuses on energy, environmental regulatory issues. i have to tell you, you have to hear what they say. the former mexican president talking about the goal here. economic growth and sustainability are interdependent. you cannot have one without the other. what do you say? >> well, if that is the case what we need to subsidize it with taxpayer dollars? if this is such a profitable idea, if the green energy market is a multitrillion-dollar economy, then let the ceos and venture-capital this figure that out. while this been a your money in my money? it makes economic sense. this culture of promoting these ideas with government capitol only creates government welfare or corporate welfare and creates corporate dependence. gerri: companies that fail as we talked about some many times in the show. whether you're talking about solyndra or a number of others that our government financed. you would think that maybe these are just wacked-out the trees coming of the wild ideas. and back, this green growth alliance has members like the world bank, deutsche bank, any number, ge can hsbc as members.
i will say hard energy sources and fossil fuels and that sort of thing, and even in my own personal campaign there was a hit piece that came out about how i was in bed with shell oil and nigeria and active vifts there and we know that is true and disappearing and what not and i don't think we should under estimate the type of political quagmire that this program will find itself in and the attacks are unwarranted and misinforming and certainly i'm not suggesting they're all coming from pg&e, but certainly there is a motivation to maintain the monopoly they have held in the city around providing energy, so with that being said i just wanted to close my comments and i am glad next week i think we're at lafco hearing the task force recommendations. that is critical and sometimes we pass the policies and our actions never conform with the policies that we pass, so if we're serious about reaching that goal in 10 years i think we really need to get serious and that's why cleanpower sf is so important, but in closing i want to go back again and harp on my jimmy carter issue of earlier and
're going to reach these goals of 100% renewable energy in that time frame. >> right. >> and certainly that's why i had some concerns around making sure that the values of the cleanpower sf program are ones that are always emphasized because again this is a conversation that has been in this country really since -- for a long time, but certainly in the 70's it took on a greater level of discussion, but then the conversation sort of didn't go anywhere. i think it was jimmy carter was the person person to put solar energy panels on the roof, and then i mentioned a couple of times someone named emory lovins who wrote a book "soft energy path" and took on the issues of fossil fuels and coal and sustainable wind and solar and other sources and just 30 years later we're still -- >> still plugging away. >> still at the beginning of the conversation, so for years i guess san franciscans really haven't had an opt in -- certainly not an opt out choice, and so sometimes we talk too much about opt in i get a little nervous, so anyway i thed to thank you. >> you're welcome. >> before going to public co
by private company asks so they would be solar installingers and energy fishgee retrofit companies under under the local hiring ordinance there is a requirement that a certain number of jobs be local and so we have been working to earth a earth earth a certificate contain a job [spelling?] and there is no program to employ the people trained by the program and so we are recommending o wd restart and expand it's operation to train these folk who would then be qualified into a pool of local labor for hiring for by the company that is implement these projects. . >> all right mr. moran? >>> one of the things i have been trying to figure out is how this effort that you are describing measures with what we have in front of us and with what the board of supervisors have improved and. >> yes, last time, i asked whether it was an either or and whether we have phase one in front of us or if you can do both if you choose to and the sense that i had it was more the latter and in reading this material though, it seems that you proposed to somethingly change what would be in the phase one on off
francisco we're meeting a program that meets the needs of the city, not just around clean energy but employment and if we're successful in this program, and especially to the build out of the program that can happen when we have revenue coming in and many jobs can come with the build out and i am excited about that. there are neighbors in san francisco that are greatly impacted by unemployment, greatly impacted by marginalization and racism and inability to access the job market and this can lead the way that we have a strong implementation of programs and services to support communities that are in need of opportunity, so i'm very xietded about how we can move forward with this program, and i will actually cede the mic to the president of the commission. any opening remarks about today's -- >> i can't add more to that articulate overview and i support it and thank you to the commissioners that preceded me and the staff and the now general manager as well for their contributions during that process. thank you mr. chairman. >> thank you. today we will be discussing the custome
while reasserting american global energy leadership. even balancing the budget will be easier with this initiative. congress and the administration should begin conversation about a broad-based carbon tax. this would give the right signals on energy sources and use. it could raise money to reduce the deficit, restore our infrastructure, speed and finance conservation. there are a number of other commonsense steps that would make progress on carbon pollution and energy conservation goals more significant. the epa should stop dragging its feet permitting old coal plants to continue to spew forth toxic waste, harming the environment and the health of our citizens. it is past time the clean air act reinforced. make sure there are proper safeguards for the cracking technology. make sure this reservoir of inexpensive gas does not undercut the addition of renewables to our energy portfolio. solar, wind, geothermal. dership on these technologies for a balanced energy portfolio and ultimately to reduce our carbon footprint. at each step, we should be looking to enhance energy conservat
this find of oil in iraq, it was near the iranian border. just today on press tv, the iranian energy minister say this is share reserves. they want to move in. the context in iraq a kurdish conflict within are with the kurds have cut down their oil production from 100,000 barrels a day to 5,000 because they don't want baghdad to control it. so baghdad says, look, we found oil. we'll not be as dependent on the kurdish region. into this conflict america has been missing in action and iran is going to fill those voids if we stay asleep against political islam and its interests. melissa: steven, you make the great point this means that we should be more dependent on ourselves than ever before. we need the pipeline, but also pushes the focus to fracking and to shale. i worry especially with the president's speech yesterday and with the turnover that we're about to see at the department of energy that maybe we're going to see a crackdown on fracking and on shale here in the u.s. that really goes against our own self-interests. >> well, it really would. it really would be a shock, melissa i
providing a renewable energy credit versus firmed and shaped renewable power, so it's the product difference that is embedded in that price difference which goes to commissioner olague's statement that people need to understand the value behind what the price premium is addressing. >> and credit that pg&e can purchase rather than generate the clean power themselves . correct. >> correct. >> and we limit that component to 5% of the overall portfolio. >> thank you. commissioner moran any other? >> no. >> commissioner vietor. >> yes, i had a follow up with that. with the code of kukd and the script and how we talk about the cleanpower sf and the pg&e offering and i don't know if that is sort of -- you talked about that internally i imagine but i think that would be a very important part of the roll out plan and the outreach plan is when that pg&e offering does come online how it will be talked about to the tar communities and the other groups that we will bring in down the road and i wanted to highlight that. i think that's important piece of the outreach program is how -- while staying with
're assessment of this. >> obama: the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we can't cede to other nations the technology that willpower new jobs and new industry, we must claim it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forest and waterways our crop lands and snow capped peaks. >> cenk: so michael, first off were you encouraged by these portions of the speech? >> yes, i was encouraged. i was inspired. i thought it was a great speech. you know, i thought what the president did really well was he talked about fighting climate disruption both as moral obligation, but he also pointed out that transitioning to clean energy is a great economic opportunity. it's not just an obligation that we have for future generations. it's an opportunity that we have right now to move beyond dirty fuel. i thought the president did a great job. >> cenk: all right michael, we know that it wasn't just words in this case, because "the new york times" with a story

for america, we have passed good energy legislation, good budgeting legislation. we set priorities for the nation, but yet they failed to go anywhere in the senate. and with that, i yield to mr. huelskamp. >> thank you, congressman duncan. i agree with all your comments and we might come to a little different vote tomorrow on where we head and then frankly, we have to have a budget. but raising the debt ceiling for a budget to be named later is to me something i won't be able to vote for, but we are trying to understand that we have a sequester. but the resequencing issue is interesting and only in washington could that be a word, where we are trying to resequence what is going on here. one thing i remain concerned about, after two years up here, washington is broke and dysfunctional. it is dysfunctional when the president is going to be late in his budget. $50 billion in spending. most of which won't be spent until 2015 and i'll just say when i visit with constituents at home, this is the worst they have come to expect from washington, when the dust settles at the end of the day,
of the denying quorum and in the case of speaking as long as you cou could, you had to spend time and energy, you had to organize and it was visible before this body. it was visible before the reporters gathered in the balcony. therefore, the american people, long before there was a television camera here, could see what you were doing and the public could provide feedback on that. but now we come to the modern era. from 1970 forward. in which it became popular to start using the objection as an instrument of party warfare, the objection to a final vote. you know, if we turn back before 1970, you had an overlap of the parties of perhaps 30 members. and so if one had used his objection, they'd have a good sense that you would be able to get cloture. furthermore, there was a social contract that you only interrupted the workings of this body on an issue of deep principle. you only blockaded the operations of the senate on an issue of profound concern to your state. not as a routine instrument of party politics. but that's changed over the last 45 years, since 1970 forward, the last 43 years, in whi
congress. take the movement energy into those stairs -- spheres with the ideas matter of the heart of occupy. >> winter is coming. cities like san francisco and oakland and other cities are closing down the encampments and chasing people off. you can drive 90 miles from davis and pepper spray. it is hard to maintain people's attention for long periods of time. i am wondering -- should they be occupying the supreme court? [applause] >> i was talking about that today. with all respect for putting your body on the line which captivated the imagination in the beginning, it now needs to be less about states and place -- spaces and places and more about going to wear in justice -- injustice is. there are plans to occupy the supreme court from the second anniversary of the citizens united decision. that crazy decision has given the rights to corporations to unleash their treasuries into our already polluted political system. go there. go to your local congresspersons office. go to banks charging student loans up the highest rates. go to those places. i think we will see more of that. occu

and clean energy policies that the president can enact and congress can enact. the president can do a lot of things. the environmental protection can do a lot of things. the department of energy and agriculture can do a lot of things that don't need congress. congress itself, we don't know what is going to happen. we tried three years ago to pass the climate clean energy bill. that was defeated. anything that ambitious to pass is unlikely this time. >> michael: listen, he said the governor of nebraska dave heineman completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becom

to the threat of climate change. the president also emphasizing the importance of sustainable energy sources like wind and solar power. he said, investing in clean energy is an economic solution for the u.s. the administration is now scrapping a plan for tough new fracking rules. the measure unveiled would have forced energy companies to reveal the chemicals there were using when drilling on public land. in entirely new draft of final regulations are set to be the first major rule governing the process. you want to watch that very closely. and a handful of energy companies. fortune magazine's list the -- listed the top 100 companies to work for. fun factor in the back in 2010 the oil and gas promised the staff that if it doubles its production rate and reserves by 2015 every employee will get a check for a hundred thousand dollars. everyone. and an earlier held goal that was meant rewarded 400 workers with 50,000 each. sounds pretty good. one to trade in the dusty old van gogh for a luxury it -- luxury getaway in st. barts? the ceo of a new pond business that only caters to the 2%. good news

the energy and creativity and passion into projecting his ideas that he did put in the first couple of years into trying to compromise with people who were not having it. i'm very optimistic. >> i think we're part of making the case, not just part of people in the administration, or whatever. but people who believe in progressive action. david, how do we make the case in the time of a $16 trillion debt, and i know we have to get around this, that we could have a capital budget. we could raise money and spend it in a way that would increase the wealth of this country because of infrastructure and allowing us to have the transportation that is equal to that in europe today, western europe and in asia. can we make that case, or are we stuck with this big debt, therefore all we talk about is retrenchment? >> well, you have to make the case that in this hyper competitive global economy that we now live in, we can't afford to let hurry infrastructure either go to waste or not keep up with what is happening in other countries. he made that argument today, the president, in terms of sustainable ener
